RE: Fertilizer for Roses in Containers?

I use the liquid stuff I find at the gardencenter. There are different sorts, I often pick one with seaweed. Cowmanurecompost are good too, remove the top soil layer and fill up with compost.

If you put nettles in a bucket of water and let it stand you can use this to water the pots. It contains nitrogen, but no P or K.
